How Do Volumizing Products Work?
Before learning about that, ask yourself what do you think of Volumizing products? In recent times, you can find Volumizing shampoo, conditioners, mousse, gel and hair spray. Are all of ‘em comes handy or useful? May be or maybe not. It actually depends on how you want to provide volume to your hair.
If you want to get the volume to your hair like a “magic” do not go for shampoo or conditioner. Because there are no such “magic” ingredients in Volumizing shampoo and conditioners that can add and amp up the volume to your thin, flat hair. You better go for Volumizing gel, hairspray or mousse. In these products, there is polymer technology which helps your hair to hold strongly in one place. When you apply a Volumizing gel or spray at the roots of your hair, these products can lift the hair away from your head and give the illusion of more body and volume.
Good quality Volumizing hair products also contain cationic charges and some additional ingredients which help the tresses become weightless thus your hair stays lifted and bulky for a longer time. The additional ingredients consist oil-control composite (which help limit sebum that weigh down the hair and making your hair thin, dull, limp and flat), which make your hair appear fullness and more body.
Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner
Volumizing shampoo and conditioner help in mainly two ways: these products remove residue and provide a small amount of stiffening polymers which help the hair gain more body. This is effective you do not over-condition your hair after washing the strands with shampoo.
However, most of the times the Volumizing shampoo weigh down the naturally fine hair. Especially be stay away from the shampoo and conditioners which contain Shea butter and argan oil. These ingredients are too heavy for the fine and thin hair. If your hair is dry prone, you can use the products contains with lighter ingredients like royal jelly and linseed oil in the wintertime.
And finally, it is best to try a few shampoo and conditioners with your own and see what’s working best on your hair. For someone, Volumizing shampoo and conditioners are a myth and for someone, it works like magic. If you are confused, you can start your trying by using the Pantene Pro-V Sheer Volume Thick, Full Body Shampoo.
What Are the Best Volumizing Hair Products?
As we said before, Volumizing gel, mousse and hairsprays work faster like magic than the Volumizing shampoo and conditioners. To be more specific, if you want to know, which ingredients should you search for while planning a purchase? Our answer would go for, pick up a Volumizing hair product that has one of these ingredients: polymers, quaternized proteins, powders like starch and talc, and surfactants.
Because polymers coat the hair fiber and add toughness and add volume to the hair while quaternized proteins make the hair cuticles stronger without weighing it down. The starch and talc powder can make friction together and improve hair volume. And finally the surfactants do not leave any residue and this ingredient is very lightweight. It can cleanse your hair without adding weight.
After testing with a lot of Volumizing hair products, we find mousse is one of the best effects to lift up the tresses and give it more body. The foam is lightweight and it never weighs the hair down. Mousse coats each fiber ad give your hair some stiffness. When the film dries out, each hair pushes the other hair and your overall hair gets more volume and lifts up.
However, we have used numerous Volumizing products and we find these products helpful for most of the hair types. So our recommendation goes:
Here’s one more thing, other than using good quality Volumizing hair products, you need to prepare your hair to get the maximum output of it. Preparing your hair to get volume in it is not a lot to do a thing. Just do not apply the Volumizing products on wet hair as water dilutes the products and makes it spread to unwanted areas and makes your hair sticky. When your hair becomes at least 80%-90% dry, apply the Volumizing hair products and use a large brush to comb it, and give shape to your hair to your desired style.
What Are the Other Volumizing Options
If you are more conscious about your hair health and want to have natural Volumizing products, you can have that but those are not as effective as the other products you are seeing on the market. Comparing the polymers and other ingredients (not natural), no other natural ingredients can give great hair Volumizing result.
However, there are no perfect solutions or products that can provide volume to your hair. Proper use of styling products can give certain results, but that is not any permanent or perfect solution. Besides, some recommend coloring your hair to get more volume but this one is not satisfying too. For someone, these Volumizing products work like magic and for someone, it’s like a myth.
The best way to get the volume to your hair is by trying each product and sees the result with your own. If you have healthy hair, it is okay to apply styling tools and products to get more volume. Try using different style and products and come to a conclusion with your own. We only can help you by suggesting. But the real testing should be run by you with your own hair.
